COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It may sound nuts, but most ales with nutty flavors or aromas are made without any real nuts. Abita Pecan Harvest Ale is made with real Louisiana pecans. The natural oils from the nuts give the ale a light pecan finish and aroma. It’s wonderful paired up with both red meats and seafood - and no suprise it’s great with nuts too. Abita Pecan Harvest Ale, crack one open for yourself today.

Absolutely gorgeous on the eyes - rich red color with a thick head when poured from a bottle into a 20 oz tulip. Very, very slight nuttiness on the nose. Crisp, clean mouthfeel, almost like a big production lager. Flavor was "meh" at best - not much to it. My Bud Light-drinking wife loved it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This beer reminds me of walking through a field of multi-colored trees in the autumn air. It starts with a silky off-white head and a glass full of caramel and amber hues. Autumn smells such as maple brown sugar and candied nuts come to mind on the nose with some nutmeg spice mixed in as well. The slightly sweet, light-bodied taste is not as intense as the aromas might initially suggest, but the beer has a nice carbonation to it, good hop structure which adds balance, and finishes crisply and refreshingly. Definitely one of the better autumn seasonal ales I’ve had.

EtTuCthulhu (1045) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - OCT 22, 2013
The aroma, although the pecan component is nice, is completely overtaken by the off-putting basement aroma of the yeast. The appearance has a beautiful hazy copper color with a large off-white head. However, the taste cannot save this beer due to how it tastes like it smells due to a mild sour, touch sweet, and touch umami flavor. The palate combines a lively carbonation, medium body, nutty finish, and a thin texture.

drostj (105) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - OCT 21, 2013
Bottle. Pours a very nice clear amber brown. Very little aroma - a bit woodsy, slightly musty. A bit tangy with a slight effervescence; good clean flavor - somehops and a bit of toasted malt, slightly sweet. Don’t get pecanat all though. Nice smooth finish. A good ale but nothing special. More pecans maybe? There are lots of decent ales out there - why not make this one stand out?

JStax (2980) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Draft pour. Translucent amber with a lazy white head. Aroma is nuts for sure and some sweet malty notes. Pretty light body. Alright.

illiniphil (130) - Nashotah, Illinois, USA - OCT 19, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a dense two finger head. Taste is malt, biscuits with a nutty hint. Excellent beginning but finish left me wanting more. This was a pretty good beer that could be great with more depth and fullness of flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

EithCubes (4885) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 16, 2013
Bottle best by 01/26/14, but man, they need a new date printer. Mine’s 5.2% abv. Nose is oily, earthy, perhaps a little meaty -- is that lipid overdose? Even some biscuity and melanoidin character, but not really getting nuts. Pours a deep orange leaning into light brown, with a dense and soapy beige head. Ah, the taste of malt complexity! Biscuit, toast, low-level roast, earth, caramel, and yes, nuts! Dry, even very dry, with light-medium bitterness and no astringency; just a hint of tartness to give it great smack, medium carbonation and a medium body, very subtle hopping. I like this a lot; doesn’t fit into the red-brown ale dichotomy, but a pleasant and easy-going trail mix that I’d gladly have again.

ROBC3366 (648) - north reading, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 13, 2013
Pours a dark amber with minimal head. Smells of nuts and spice. And tastes of dough and nutty not sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from a bottle with a thin ivory head & a copper color. Subtle nutty toffee aroma. Slight lacing, moderate carbonation, body & mouthfeel. Lots of toffee up front, mild nut in the middle with subtle hints of biscuit at the end . I enjoyed this beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bamsen78 (3138) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 11, 2013
On cask @ Fire Works, Arlington, VA. Pours slightly hazy amber with small off-white head. Clear malty aroma with notes of hops and fruit. Faint, spicy aroma with hoppy notes and a salty finish. Watery. Boring. A disappointment,
